[V8] front shock insert replacement question

A few years back when I replaced the shock inserts in my 5K (now Cody's 
5K), I seem to recall something about pouring 250ccs (?) of motor oil down 
into each strut tube before installing the new inserts.

I can't check this - Cody also got the Bentley and the Haynes books.

I'm doing the V8 this weekend - Am I hallucinating, or do I need to do 
this, and if I do, is 250cc the correct amount per side? (No, I am NOT 
going to ask if dino or synth is preferred - or if I should add MMO or STP, 
and how much - it is getting whatever I have on the shelf, which is 
probably 20-50 Castrol GTX.)

Best Regards,

Mike Arman
